Bennet Statement on President Trump’s Assistance to Farmers

Washington, D.C. – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement after the Department of Agriculture announced it would give $12 billion to U.S. farmers hurt by retaliatory tariffs:

“This solution is as insane as the policy that got us into this mess. Our farmers and ranchers want to compete and grow in the global economy. The President’s incoherent trade policy continues to lead to missed opportunities. President Trump cannot fix this self-inflicted crisis with a $12 billion slush fund.”
